A lot of 20 year olds would think Yoko was somehow related to Olympian and Dancing With The Stars contestant Apolo Ohno.

20-year-olds watch Dancing with the Stars? What's the world coming to?

I tried the "who's Yoko?" question on my 16-year-old. No problem answering it. What he said was: "John Lennon's wife. That nut case." So that proves it, right? Scientific sample!

As for Justin Bieber's mom, apparently she's out of the running on a technicality. The Kid says that can't be the most hated woman in rock, because Justin Bieber is not rock.

And poor Courtney, sigh, I wish I hadn't known that was her on Aoxomoxoa ... I love that picture, and it kinds of ruins it for me ... She was so cute :-(

That's C.L.? Oh, no!
But kids are cute then, regardless of the little monsters that they can turn into. Who does she know in La Famiglia? Actually, I don't need to know.
Do I?

I know. It's so sad. I hope the other ones grew up into lovely little counter-culture flowers. Her father is Hank Harrison. (You know you really wanted to know.)

She was shoving herself into photo ops even back then.

What I have never figured out, after reading many books, is how she ended up there...Hank seems to have been written out of GD history except for the most minor footnote (the only real contribution I've ever heard was maybe that he took Phil to the first Warlocks show?).

It's not that Hank was written out of GD history, it's just that he didn't play much part in it. He was Phil's friend and briefly managed the Warlocks in 1965; I think he got them their first SF gig at a topless bar. Then he hung out with the band for the next few years.

There is actually a dispute over who the Aox girl is. Rock Scully said it was Stacy Kreutzmann (Bill's daughter) - Pigpen, next to her, was actually her babysitter.
